night. me included. let's show you what's happening with that day planner. we do have some showers out there now. i think they're going to be gone in another hour or two. then we'll end up partly sunny for a while before more clouds and showers return later this afternoon. lunch time temps in the mid- 70s. could be a stray shower then but late afternoon, evening is when i think we'll have a few more showers and storm. high around 80. 5:00 temp . lots of moisture from us all the way up into new england now with all the showers and storms from last night. had a lot of lightning, a lot of thunder. so a little bit of lightning coming out of these storms as you're pulling out of montgomery now into howard county. eastern montgomery county seeing it much more so than areas to the west. we've got 95, 29, a rough ride up from columbia down toward d.c. even in town now, look at laurel here, the darker reds in northwest d.c. coming out of arlington about to cross the capital area. we're also looking in northern charles county with some showers and rumbles of thunder
there. this will be out another couple of hours but the rain is causing all sorts of issues on the roads. here's beverly farmer with more. right now, howard, what we've been dealing with since after midnight, the crash on the inner loop of the beltway between old georgetown road and the exit for 355 bethesda. involved a tractor-trailer that knack knifed. fuel spilled and on the inner loop of the beltway still single file to the left gets by. this is the shot at old georgetown road, the taillights heading away from you on the inner loop. light volume at this hour so it's not causing too much time. they hope to have everything wrapped up there very soon. on the 95 corridor, a southbound crash in fredericksburg. overnight road work near the rapahannock river has been cleared. northbound volume starting to build as you make your way in. here's 66 eastbound past lynn street, the rosslyn tunnel. just after the tunnel at 110 accident, the crash on the right shoulder is not a factor for you. if you're heading up on 395, the lanes are open to the 149 street -- 14th street bridge. it will take extra time on the
wet pavement. keep that in mind. back to you. >> beverly, thank you. the regular n.f.l. referees worked their first game back last night. >> when is the last time you've seen them getting a standing ovation everywhere? everybody is happy to have them back. this is the ravens quarterback, puts the first points on the board. second quarter, a touchdown pass. baltimore stayed ahead. close in the the browns a second chance at a hall mary -- hail mary. incomplete. ravens win 23-16. here is kristin fisher with more reaction to the refs coming back. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. leapt me ask you this. when is the last time that you saw referees getting a standing ovation? most times they're booed or heckled but not last night. check out the reception they received in baltimore just
before kickoff. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: look at that. a standing ovation for the referees. that may be the first time in the history of football. throughout the game people held up signs. my favorite said "finally we get to yell at the real refs. welcome back." these guys really got the rock star treatment last night. this all happened less than 24 hours after an agreement was reached between the n.f.l. and the referee union. after nearly a year of negotiations, the two sides finally reached a compromise on pensions, salaries. fans were ecstatic. coaches we leaved. no one was happier about the return of the real refs plan the players. here's lorenzo alexander and steven owens. >> i say hallelujah. hallelujah. thank you, lord. >> you always say you don't miss something until you go without it.
handling the replacement refs the last couple of weeks has been difficult during that time. >> reporter: even the real refs can be frustrating at times. how did they do on their first game back? pretty good. there was a controversial pass interference call on the first half but other than that, a+s all around. they're being treaded with bringing back credibility and restoring the flow to the game. i tell you what, fans could not be happier. i'll have some reaction from redskins fans coming up at 5:30. mike, andrea? >> thanks, kristin live in the satellite center. see you in a bit. skeletal remains found last month in stafford county, virginia have now been identified. katherine bryant of washington, d.c. was 33 years old when she was reported missing in the summer of 2006. d.n.a. determined the remains discovered on august 16 off i- 95 were hers. foul play is suspected in bryant's death. the family of a hit and run victim is making a plea for help now. it has been a ebony johnson was

temperatures in the 60s. there could be a patch or two of fog. sunrise 7:02. we'll get some partly sunny conditions today. maybe even partly to mostly sunny at times with just a stray shower possible by midday. i really think much of the activity that we're going to see is going to hold off till late this afternoon and this evening. the better chances will be south and southeast of washington as we get into the nighttime hours. so i know it's friday night football and those areas will have to be maybe battling a few showers there. 74 by 8:00. our high today is going to top out right about 80 degrees. overnight had the showers and storms. they've lifted up into new york state, into connecticut, but it's chill yu up here. its -- chilly up here. it's in the 40s. to our west we've got very little west of the metro right now. here's a little shower there south of leesburg in toward loudoun county but i want to take you montgomery county almost clearing now as the heavy stuff now along routes 29, 95, route 1 from bwi, down to the university of maryland. prince george's county county, bowie, down 301, there's a lot
of activity. shadyside, you're getting ready to get hit with even more of these heavier rains. dunkirk you'll see some more. right along route 15 in leesburg, that will go back toward montgomery county as well. that's all that's left on the west side for now. temperatures are running in the 60s this morning. 63 alexandria to 68 in college park. we've got 64 in leesburg and 66 in haymarket. outside on our michael & son weather camera, looks nice. good visibility right now. some light showers being reported at the top of the hour at national, 57 with the humidity al 87%. so there's a lot of low level moisture in the air. cool stuff up north, in the 40s and 50s. we're in the 60s this morning. there is a front that separates the cool from the warm. that front with a little area of low pressure responsible for all the rain moving up toward new england. this thing is going to slowly dri. off to our south. with -- drift off to our south. with it it will push the chance of showers and storms south of
us tonight more so than north. the forecast, we'll get back into a late shower or storm, high about 80. tonight we're dipping into the 50s. i think we're okay tomorrow, 72. sunday light chance of a shower 74. monday also looks pretty good. clouds will increase. 75. a better chance for showers on tuesday, highs again in the mid- 70s. monika is off but beverly farmer is in. she has timesaver traffic. right now if you are traveling on the beltway headed out of bethesda into silver spring, the good news is you can get there freely now. tractor-trailer crash they have been working on for the past five hours on the inner loop in bethesda has been cleared from the roadway. truck towed away. everything open at old georgetown road and 355. nice light volume here despite the wet pavement. building volume past frederick 85 getting into urbana but all lanes open. there is a new crash reported on 95 southbound in maryland out of laurel. checking south for the crash. travel virginia northbound 95,

a bath. it's quick and more convenient to take a shower. >> we'll be right back.

espinoza. the next inning michael moore to the plate. adam la roche second. moore crushes that one. no doubt about it. it goes right into the bullpen. that was his second homer of the night. nationals win 7-3. how about that monster home run. >> it felt good. it felt real good. any time you hit a ball like that, you know, sometimes you just got to appreciate it a little bit. watch it go. >> reporter: to football. n.f.l. referees are back in business after reaching a tentative agreement with the league. no one can be happier than the redskins players. they play the bucs sunday. at practice yesterday, all the talk was about those guys in black and white. some with passionate words. >> i said hallelujah. hallelujah. thank you, lord. we've got the old refs back. >> you don't miss something until you go without it. handling these refs, the replacement refs the last couple of weeks has been difficult for us during that time. >> that's a quick look at
sports. have yourself a great friday. the nats celebrated another big win. the online deals company living social is going to cover the $30,000 cost, at least the deposit to keep metro open the additional hour during the playoffs. that means the fans will not have to worry to find an alternate way home if the post- season games run late. we'll have more from the game in baltimore where the real refs took the field for the first time this season. that's coming up. >> never had so much press. >> remember the cinderella story of the flea market painting that turned out to be a renoir? it's falling apart. heading into silver spring, the good news is overnight tractor-trailer crash is cleared. here's the beltway at the american legion bridge. just the wet pavement will cost you time. you're watching 9news now. we'll be right back. good morning.

are skirting on out of here to the east. into prince george's county, into howard county, into anne arundel. just going to skirt northern calvert here. annapolis area seeing it now. you get outside the beltway, coming in on 50 or coming down from baltimore on 29, route 1, you're going to see it. 97 also. by now most of it east of 301. even in prince george's county. so that's good news. even that shower we showed you in loudoun seems to be falling apart. let's go to beverly farmer in for monika. if you're traveling on 95 headed out of fredricksburg and making your way north, right now besides the wet pavement and volume building, lanes are open. pace still decent for folks heading into quantico. here in dale city near the rest area, volume is still light heading into woodbridge and on into springfield. northbound 395 still a good pace leaving edsall road, landmark up toward shirlington, the pentagon and the inbound 14th street bridge. downtown traffic no incidents to report. just the volume there. signal lights on the fritz on
14th street at c street. they've been flash mode since yesterday afternoon. 66 has been a good ride. no incidents or accidents belt waip through montgomery county. i can -- beltway through montgomery county. i can say that now. building volume as you head west in silver spring to georgia avenue. 95 southbound accident after 198 has just been reported. your next timesaver traffic at 5:38. back to you. >> thank you, beverly. this morning d.c. police are investigating a deadly stabbing. >> officers got the call of an assault late last night on 50g9 place northeast. when they got there, they found a man unconscious and he died moments later. it appears he was stabbed in the abdomen. detectives have not released any information about possible suspects in the case. in court documents investigators say two of the three suspects in last month's capitol hill beating admitted to attacks thomas maslin. the three made their first
appearance in court yesterday. the judge ordered all three held without bail. maslin was beaten on his way home from a nationals game. he's slowly recovering after undergoing several brain surgeries and the loss of one eye. by all accounts the real n.f.l. refs got the call right in the closing seconds of the game in baltimore. the browns were trying to tie things up on a hail mary pass attempt. the pass fell incomplete. baltimore wins 23-16. here's kristin fisher in our satellite center. she has more on the big standing ovation they got when they came out. >> reporter: it was pretty ridiculous. no doubt the real stars last night were these referees. after three weeks of questionable calls from the replacement refs, the real refs made their triumph participant return and they were -- triumphant return and they were treated like rock stars. they took the field to a standing ovation just before
kickoff and they got another standing o during the mike check. that never happens. ravens fans even held up signs during the game saying "welcome back." here in washington redskins fans watching the game called it a return to credibility for the n.f.l. >> i think it was good for the game because the fans were starting to get disgruntled. >> we're happy to have the n.f.l. refs back. >> the players know they're going to do their job right. >> reporter: and they did their job right last night. look at that sign. that is so well done, so well said. there was one controversial pass interference called during the first half of the game. other than that by and large a+s all around. even though the real refs are back, their agreement with the n.f.l. for now is only a tentative agreement. it still needs to be ratified by members of the union. they'll be voting friday and saturday in dallas. then if all goes according to plan and the agreement is approved which it is expected
of course to be approved, then the real refs are going to pick up their equipment. they'll get their game assignments and they should be back on the field officiating on sunday. so i tell you what. it is a good time to be a referee in the n.f.l. this is probably the most love that they're ever going to be feeling. >> by far the most attention. they better enjoy it because it's going to disappear quickly. as the sign says, it's good to yell at the real refs for a change. to campaign 2012. both main presidential candidates return to virginia on thursday. boy, they spent a lot of time in the state. this weekend they'll also be cramming for this week's presidential debate which is coming up soon. >> reporter: early voting began in iowa thursday morning and voters lined up to cast their ballots. president obama's team is feeling confident that most of these early votes will be for the president. >> this many people this early in the morning really shows that there's strong support here in iowa for the president. >> reporter: but on thursday,
both candidates were in another battleground state. >> how is it going, virginia beach? >> reporter: president obama talked to voters in southern virginia. >> growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> reporter: while mitt romney talked with veterans about looming cuts to the military in the northern part of the state. >> 136,000 jobs will be lost in virginia as a result of this move. >> reporter: the candidates will spend time this weekend preparing for next week's debate ahead of the faceoff in denver both campaigns seem to be trying to lower expectations. >> we are looking forward to the debates as you know, and there have been difficulties. you have to give the president some credit for the campaign they're running. >> reporter: romney's staff issued a talking points memo telling surrogates to point out how well president obama has done in past debates. >> as president i'm going to have to make some tough decisions. >> reporter: the obama campaign issued a statement pointing out the president hasn't debated
since 2008. >> 10,000 bucks? >> reporter: while governor romney got some practice in during the primaries. obama campaign spokesman says the worst-case scenario is if the president falls off the stage. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. we told you earlier this month about the renoir painting a virginia woman bought at a flea market for just $7. but the painting both be auctioned off in alexandria tomorrow as scheduled because it's stolen property. a "washington post" reporter was digging around this week and that led to the discovery of documents in the baltimore museum of arts library showing the painting was housed there from 1937 to 1949. it was stolen in 1951. now the f.b.i. is investigating but the woman is only out $7. >> 1951? that was a long time ago. >> but people hide these things in their basements. >> she should keep the painting.
that's how i feel. at this moment are you trying to talk yourself out of working out this morning? >> we'll see what excuses jessica doyle might have next in her couch to 5k report. we'll be back.
welcome back. your weather first. showers east of town. we're going to have a decent day in spite of the storms we've been having during the overnight. look for a mix of clouds and sunshine. partly sunny, maybe a sprinkle toward the middle of the day. later this afternoon and this evening, chance for a few more showers and stores, especially south and southeast of town. 3:00 temps 79 with a high of 8 on at 6:00 p.m. still looking at temperatures in the mid-70s. i'll be back with the seven-day forecast in about five minutes. right now here's beverly farmer with timesaver traffic. despite the wet pavement, we really are off to a pretty good ride. inner loop of the beltway everything in bethesda from the overnight truck wreck is gone so no issues there for you. outer loop as you head west from college park to silver spring, volume just building. the crash southbound on 195 in
laurel moved on to the shoulder. not a big deal. next timesaver traffic at 5:48. back to you. >> beverly, thank you. there she is. >> you want to shape up? get off the couch. couch to 5k with jessica doyle. >> i'm here with jessica doyle and we're gearing up. actually we're running. >> look at howard. there he goes. >> the last time i was with you, we were in hawaii. >> we're in california. we're running backwards. we're running forwards. >> three weeks you've been doing this. >> why am i finishing up week two on week three? i got horribly sick. i've been complaining about it for a week and a half now. that kind of put a crimp in my plans. i'm on antibiotics, people. here's write am as of yesterday. >> reporter: hey, friends, i'm about to end week two of couch
to 5k. what this is going to entail is a five-minute warm-up. then i'm going to do three sets of the 90-second run, a 90- second walk, a 90-second run and then a two-minute walk. of course i have to do my cooldown. come o let's go running. >> do you run when you have a cold? a lot of people say push through it. clearly i chose not to. some runners use the neck rule to decide if you're going to run. symptoms affecting you below the neck, let's say you have chest colds or body aches, take time off. symptoms above the neck, runny nose, cough, hard-core runners still run. if you have a sinus infection which i had, that can escalate to pneumonia if you push yourself. so listen to your body. not when it tells you to nap or eat pizza but when it's telling you not to run, maybe you
should consider it. i was more touch than couch to 5k. but i do want to offer you something of value. trainer steve tells us why strength training is so important in a running program. >> running beats you up. running is not an easy restorative exercise that makes you better. running tears you apart. it's harder on your joints, harder on your us muss -- on your muscles. you get better from recovering from all the exercise. that holds true for all exercise but the strength is going to help you last longer. it's going to help you feel better. it's going to help you run faster and with more confidence. >> trainer steve, very smart guy. this is what week three looks like. five-minute warm-up, two rounds of this. jog two minutes, walk two mince, jog three minutes, walk two minutes. you can find out more tips from trainer steve and my experiences along the way on my
new blog on tum letter. it's -- tumbler. it's called couch to 5k with jessica dial. i'm starting week three today. get off the couch. run with me. howard bernstein? >> trainer steve saying it's hard on your knees. not a great endorsement but at least you lost five pounds so we're ahead of the game. >> we'll send it back to mike. >> that's one way to do it. if you'd like to work out for a great cause this weekend, you can do that, too. ride a bike. we have a bike ride to tell but in a few minutes. >> plus, a rare whale sighted on his annual migration along the coast of australia. >> if it's your birthday, you're sharing it with the following celebrities. brigette bardot is 78. he played principal rooney in
ferris bueller's day off jay jones is 66. oscar nominated actress naomi watts is 44. they call him the face of the franchise nats thirds baseman ryan zimmerman is 28. if it's your birthday, have a great day. we will be right back.
welcome back. 5:46. want you to check out this photo. lightning last night dancing across the skies there in virginia on the potomac river. mark, thank you for that. send me a picture. i'd love to share it with everybody on wusa. we do have a lingering shower but it's quickly pulling away. patchy fog will be more of an issue with temperatures in the 60s this morning. sunrise at 7:02 this morning
with sunset before 7:00 p.m. we've got good looking day today for the most part, although later we're going to have some issues potentially toward the evening. 76 at noon. winds will turn to the west and northwest. drying us out a little bit. as we get toward the late afternoon and evening hours, could be a few more showers and storms. the best chances for that will be south and east of washington. 78 at 5:00 after hitting a high around the 80-degree mark. showers and storms are now up toward new england. more activity in kentucky and southern west virginia. we'll have to see how much of this can get here later this afternoon. prince george's county just about clear now. we see the activity moving through anne arundel county. it is pulling away from route 1 and 295. 97 still a wet ride. 50 until you get out of anne arundel is wet. coastal areas like shady side over toward queens town, kent island this is all moving to the east, northeast at a pretty good clip. behind it with light winds, some clearing, we've got some
fog. stafford, warrenton, culpeper. visibilities a quarter mile. in martinsburg we have three- quarters after mile. half mile in petersburg. fog in those areas that got the heavier rains overnight. that could be a problem for another couple of hours. 60s across the board here. we've got 66 in easton. 61 in luray. that's one of our cool spots. the tappahannock airport all the way down to 59 degrees. outside on our weather camera, good visibility now. had a light shower at the top of the hour at national. they're dry at the moment. 67 with a west, northwest wind at 5 miles per hour. there goes the rain this morning. it's pulling up in toward new england. low pressure is actually helping to produce the enhanced rainfall. but this front still draping across the ohio valley. it's slowly going to pull through us. as it does, it will help fire a few more showers and potential thunderstorms mainly south of town. as we get into the evening hours and the nighttime hours, even overnight we can't rule out an isolated shower but looks better for saturday and pretty good on sunday as well.
